“You’re giving me the ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them not me; if it’s anybody, it’s me.”

Its Time to Talk About AI

Have you heard about AI? <-- If you said no, where have you been?

It's everywhere, from Alexa in your kitchen to Siri on your phone. There are even new names like ChatGPT, Dall-E, and Jasper that are making waves on the internet. These AI tools can help us do things like write articles, search the web, generate images, and make our daily lives easier.

But sometimes new technology can be hard to understand at first. Remember when we had to use a "DOS prompt" for our early computers, or "defrag" our phones? That's why we're here to help you decode some of the terms you'll hear this year. So let’s translate the geek-speak surrounding AI.

A chatbot is an app that mimics human conversation. ChatGPT is an example of a chatbot that you can try out.

Deep learning is a technique used to imitate the human brain by learning from data. AI tools are trained on real-world concepts and conversations to provide human-like responses.

Machine intelligence is the umbrella term for machine learning, deep learning, and conventional algorithms.

Natural Language Understanding (NLU) helps machines understand what we say, even if we make grammatical errors or speak with different accents.

Weak AI is the most common form of AI in use right now. It focuses on a single or small range of activities, like writing or repurposing video content. Strong AI aims to produce systems as intelligent and skilled as the human mind, but we're not quite there yet.

This is just the beginning of AI, and we'll be hearing more about it in the future. If you want to know more about how AI can be part of your business, just get in touch.

Until next time, keep fit and have fun!

(TYYV) The Yada Yada Version:

The whole world is talking about new AI and yada yada yada while it's all still new there will be a lot of geek-speak surrounding it.
